over 50 years in the same location, one of the institutions of hollywood is shutting their doors~
i'm sad to report dear readers that WORLD BOOK & NEWSSTAND on cahuega & hollywood blvds will have their last day of operations~ today~ may 25th~ 2014.
i went to visit my longtime doll of a friend DIZ MCNALLY who has worked there for 9 years.
diz is a hollywood institution in her own right... she has been part of the hollywood scene for as long as i can remember, (think angelyne with talent). my neighbor- the las palmas newsstand shut their doors last year, (in operation since 1924!) now with cahuenga newsstand gone that is it. truly an end of an era.. nobody reads anymore.. sad but true.. another one bites the dust.. a tragic victim of the modern banal times we live in.
